Manifesting can seem like some kind of mysterious secret, only meant to be known by a select few. We make it out to be something so much greater than us, when actually we are all born natural manifestors.
Identify your blockages
You are a manifesting magnet. You manifest the good and the not-so-good. You manifest it all. If you aren’t manifesting what you want, then understanding what’s blocking you will enable you to make much needed changes.
Clutter and excess cause a blockage to your manifesting flow in both money and wellbeing.
• Broken items create a sense of unworthiness for manifesting abundance
• Outdated items in your makeup drawer or pantry deplete your wellbeing and ability to attract love
• If stuff fills the bedroom, there’s no room for a soulmate
Ask angels and fairies to bring your attention to the spaces that need revamping, decluttering and cleaning. For example, I asked the fairies for help and they led me to my jewellery drawer. After cleaning, I received an unexpected four-figure speaking engagement!
Try saying this: “Angels, fairies, please guide me. Show the spots I must clear to receive (fill in the blank). Thank you for making this a perfect manifesting atmosphere!”
Thoughts such as: “I have to do it all on my own,” “nothing comes easy,” and “I have to work hard for everything” immediately cause blockages to a healthy manifesting mindset. So, catch any of your negative affirmations! If a negative statement slips, add something positive like, “However, I am now manifesting what I want with ease.” For example, an unexpected bill arrives and you accidentally say, “I never get a break!” Quickly add, “however, I am now…” while mentally imagining financial abundance and a deep sense of peace.
Feeling fearful, undeserving and unworthy blocks divine guidance, inspiration and manifesting instincts. When this occurs, immediately turn to the sky and say, “Stop! I accept that I am worthy and deserving of my dreams.”
Are you afraid of becoming ‘too materialistic’? Maybe you feel unworthy or that you shouldn’t want the things that you want because it’s selfish. If you find yourself asking ‘if I am a spiritual being having a human experience, why should I set money and material-related goals?’ then this is your blockage.
Money is a neutral energy; it is how we use it that determines if it is ‘good’ or ‘bad’. A life where you do not have to worry about bills and supporting our family makes way for energy to pursue your dreams and help those that are around you.
Feeling guilty when achieving success can also relate to blocked chakras. Ask Archangel Michael to shift this blockage: “Dear Archangel Michael, please help me release the limiting thoughts and beliefs. Help me adjust and re-align with my blessed, divine core. Thank you for your guidance and help.”
What was your upbringing like? What are you listening to? When not indulging in Soul & Spirit, what are you reading? All of this influences your manifesting ability, too!
Are any of these influencing your manifesting in a negative and limiting way?
• Affirmations inherited from family
• Affirmations you’re currently thinking and speaking
• The home environment in which you were raised
• Your current home environment
• Your current focused attention (what you’re listening to and engaging in)
• Current conversations you’ve been hearing and having
Once you’ve identified, repeat: “I appreciate and release any limiting past. I gratefully step into my powerful and positive manifesting vibration. All my thoughts and actions reflect manifesting my heart’s desire. And, it is so.”
Aligning to receive
Here are two powerful rituals that will help you make intentional adjustments and align with what you manifest.
Write a letter
Write a thank you letter addressed to your blockage. Hold to your heart, imagine all energies connected to this experience releasing from you and going into the letter, permanently sticking to the paper. Safely burn the letter, saying, “I release these connections and memories throughout all time and space forevermore.”
Now, write a letter welcoming the energy and vibration you want to receive and remain aligned with. Hold to your heart. Imagine gold and silver sparkles swirling on, around and within your body. State: “I am aligned and empowered with this new manifesting energy.” Safely burn the letter watching the smoke as it takes your request to the heavens.
Smudge with fairies
Create a cleansing spray with the fae! Fairies gently fill you with joy and gratitude (the premium manifesting emotions). If you’ve been working with fairies or taken my course FairyDust 101, then you are well versed in how fairies help you intuitively know what to do and keep your optimism and vibration high.
Collect pine needles with the fairies and ask for their guidance in choosing the best ones. Once collected, thank the fairies and set them aside.
In a spray bottle fill ¾ of water, ¼ rubbing alcohol, 3-5 drops of pine essential oil and 2-4 drops of lemon essential oil. Add the needles one by one and say, “With each pine, fairy energy is here. Thank you, fairies, for making the way clear.”
Shake the bottle, spray your room and around your aura and repeat: “Fairies, fairies, please help me. Cleanse within and all around, so I may manifest prosperity.” Spritz whenever you intuitively sense a refresher is needed.
Make your mindset matter
Mindset is the driver influencing your thoughts and actions and it is key to manifesting what you want! Start by setting your intention and protect this intention by using F.I.T. (Focused Intentional Thought). When logic, fear or worry seeps in or a well-meaning friend or expert explains why you can’t manifest this, ask yourself if this aligns with your focused intentional thought. If it doesn’t align with the outcome you desire, immediately dismiss it and release the energy. Stay laser-focused on what you want to manifest.
Create your action plan
Magic occurs when you’re aligning with the Universe. This is simple to do when you have the recipe!
1 Create aligned affirmations such as: “I am aligned and worthy of my dreams manifested. I am a magnet for success. I am happy and whole. I trust my intuition and take action on its guidance. I am a powerful, confident, manifesting magnet.”
2 Know and work with the cosmic events (sun sign, moon cycle, unique energies with solstices, gateways, retrogrades). How can you apply these energies to your mindset and action steps? For example, setting new moon intentions, using the current astrological sign strengths, working with the core manifesting Year of Tiger energies (quick and big change, going with the flow, taking powerful action).
3 Make a to-do list of physical action steps to manifest. Try meditating, cleansing, working with fairies and reading your oracle cards.
Set yourself up to win by:
• Imbuing your drinks with positive energy
• Engaging with spirit guides
• Visualising success and stating your affirmations every time you touch your crystals
• Smile every hour and everytime you see yourself in the mirror
• Journal with gratitude: “I am so thankful for… Today I was blessed with… Three things I love…”
• When flags of negativity or distraction occur, quickly jump back on your manifesting train. Close your eyes, imagine a rain shower removing the negativity. Restate your F.I.T. (Focused Intentional Thought), and ask the fairies and angels to realign your path. Take a cleansing breath and state: “Thank you.”
Congratulations! You now have a recipe for manifesting success. Confidently follow, adding your divine guidance, and you will soon be celebrating your dreams coming true!
